I am successfully using the APC Cache module on my prod website (single server). APC is performing good, caching is done very well. I wonder could I gain anything more by implementing Memcache.
I tried it briefly on dev server, I see they can run one with another (Memcached Admin shows many hits in log). But i do not see any performance gain (haven't done precise measurements).
I should mention it is pretty large site, i use 256MB for APC (sometimes cache use is almost full), there is many content types, fields, nodes(over 10k), contrib modules (425 tables in db).
I am pasting at the end of the question my settings.php config (dev, prod just have not memcached implemented). There seems not much logic if i use cache_default_class twice, as Memcache will be used (declared lately).
So - have anyone used those two together when using one server? Is there any performance gain ? What are config ?
In addition, Memcached Readme.txt suggests using
$conf['cache_class_cache_form'] = 'DrupalDatabaseCache';
but APC Readme.txt does not suggest that. I wonder why ?
Here is my code (using APC for Drupal backend cache)
# APC $conf['cache_backends'] = array('sites/all/modules/contrib/apc/drupal_apc_cache.inc'); $conf['cache_default_class'] = 'DrupalAPCCache'; $conf['page_cache_without_database'] = TRUE; $conf['page_cache_invoke_hooks'] = FALSE; # Memcache $conf['cache_backends'] = 'sites/all/modules/contrib/memcache/memcache.inc'; $conf['cache_default_class'] = 'MemCacheDrupal'; $conf['cache_class_cache_form'] = 'DrupalDatabaseCache';
